New Investor From Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

11 Replies

Hi everybody!

I’m Josh and new to real estate. I have recently quit my job working for the government  and decided to start investing to supplement the income I have just walked away from mainly from rental properties. I’m originally from Connecticut, but something about Oklahoma made it my home now. I am excited to learn and work towards this new lifestyle! I found bigger pockets from a google search about real estate, and I started listening to the podcasts on my commute to school and have found it incredibly motivating. I can’t wait to learn all I don’t know currently! Thanks for looking at my post! Make a great day!

Hi @Joshua Juoni . Welcome! 

The Oklahoma real estate community is great so definitely try to reach out and make some connections. There are lots of good events and helpful people in this community. 

Thanks everyone for the kind welcome. I’m certainly excited to start this adventure. Does anyone know how to find the local meet ups using the app? I’m still getting used to it and can’t seem to find it. Thanks! -Josh

The last one is a post that will help you choose an “investor friendly” real estate agent.

There are many agents out there, but it’s important to choose the right one.
